overthinking for sure i tried to do a lot to this image, which -when shot- i deemed as a failed shot: too blurry, the flash fired etc, etc... i separated the back from the front, ran in through hot water, then let it soak in hot coffee, and it still felt failed. 4 years later i am finally kinda ok with it being failed. it is what it is, and i need to stop thinking about it
Perhaps there is a significance in this image (both the portrayed subject and the paper itself) that urges you to keep on working on it? I usually become overly obsessed with certain objects that I later realize bear a heavy psychological semblance, a lateral burden, so to speak. They're like our own Rorschach tests.
